Last year, the Indian government banned several Chinese apps in the country, including the hugely popular game PUBG Mobile, short video platform Tiktok and other apps such as Camscanner, PUBG Mobile Lite, Shine and more. Since the banning of hundreds of Chinese apps, the Indian government has been pressuring Indian app developers to create and develop popular apps in India.
The government has been promoting “Vocals for Locals” since banning these Chinese apps. Since last year, a number of Indian app developers and startups have introduced TickTock rivals including Chingari, Mitron, Moz, Roposo. There are also a number of developers who have introduced PUBG mobile alternatives, such as FAU-G, among others.
